CUMBERLAND — Atlantic Broadband customers missing normal broadcasting of WHAG-TV on channel 12 will apparently have to wait until the end of week until the station is restored to service, according to a company spokeswoman at the firm’s Johnstown, Pa., office.
“There were several major issues relating to switching to high-definition equipment,” said the company official. “The estimated time of restoring the channel is approximately by the end of the week.”
Efforts of the Times-News to determine the precise issues that caused the broadcasting disruption were unsuccessful.
The company said it would attempt to have a technician contact the Times-News to provide specific details concerning the cause of the channel outage.
WHAG-TV has not been available locally through Atlantic Broadband since Sunday, the company said.
A spokesman for WHAG said Wednesday that the outage related to a technical issue is being repaired at the company’s broadcast site at Fairview Mountain in western Washington County.
